Further research info from the Mand Library re L137:
L137 was assigned registration # 322 on 12/1/66. This was a 1937 Seagrave 85 foot wooden tiller that was originally assigned to L27 on 5/3/37 and served there until 4/17/56 when replaced by a 1956 ALF 85 foot metal aerial. After that it was used as a spare for many years until going to L137 on 12/1/66. It was pulled, later in its career, by a 1948 Ward La France military style tractor. It still carried the FDNY registration # of 322, even though the tractor carried the number 1843 in a special series of registration numbers. A total of twenty of those 1948 WLF tractors went into service in 1948, with nineteen originally pulling older tillered wooden aerials and one attached to the 1898 Hale water tower of Water Tower 1 They were preceded by twenty similar, but not identical, WLF tractors in 1947. The only visual difference was the 1947s having a large single spotlight mounted on the windshield. The 1948 had two smaller spotlights mounted, one each, on each side of the windshield. Nineteen of the 1947 WLF tractors also were originally attached to older wooden tillers, with one attached to the 1904 Hale water tower of Water Tower 2.

I seem to remember that the Ward LaFrance was a wide apparatus and would not fit in some of the older quarters with narrow doors.
